THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU. While I listen to all the episodes, this one needs to be broadcast to the world and heard by every woman. I cried several times, feeling for the first time that, wow, someone understands me and I am not the only one that feels like this! I now don’t feel like I don’t belong, so alone, and in the corp world that maybe my observations are really not so sensitive and my ideas may not be so “weird”. I immediately went and bought the book (about the girl and her f$cks 😉) for my young adult daughter. Looking forward to the next episode!

Podcast cover

Full notes and more: reboot.io/podcast Who are you? What do you believe to be true? What do you bring consciously to the world? And, even more interesting, what do you bring unconsciously to your work, your organization, your relationships? How does that which you have either denied about yourself, or feel uncomfortable about, shape your life, either positively or negatively? What lies in this unseen shadow? And why is it important for you to explore? The work of today’s guest shows up in just about everything we do here at Reboot so we are thrilled to have one of our key teachers, Parker Palmer, join Jerry for a discussion on a very important and powerful topic: Shadow and Leadership.

"Wisdom, then, is a deeper way of knowing. Wisdom is the art of living in rhythm with your soul, your life, and the divine. Wisdom is the way that you learn to decipher the unknown; and the unknown is our closest companion. So wisdom is the art of being courageous and generous with the unknown, of being able to decipher and recognize its treasures." - John O'Donohue from "Anam Cara: A Book of Celtic Wisdom" We are so fortunate to welcome Brad Feld and Fred Wilson back to the Reboot Podcast. Jerry, Brad, and Fred have a friendship and history that goes back 20 years, and the wealth of experience between them is truly incredible. In what we hope will be a series of conversations, Fred, Brad, and Jerry share stories from the past, moments where they were pushed to their limits physically and emotionally. They talk about the critical steps they've taken to being an effective and supportive board member and investor, and how the lessons from past painful experiences show up in the values of their firms.

Parker Palmer is a man whose teachings mean so much to us and our work at Reboot, so it's wonderful to welcome him back to the podcast for a new conversation with Jerry. Jerry invited Parker back to explore some important questions: - What is the role of community in responding to a toxic environment? - How do I respond when my leader hasn't done their work and is leading from that place of shadow? - What does it mean when a leader is using organization to resolve unconscious issues? As is always the case when Parker and Jerry get together, this is a conversation packed full of deep lessons on leadership, the shadow, the importance of relational trust, and the incredible power present in community. This episode will leave you with new profound questions and answers about yourself, your role in your organization, and the power you hold, but may not yet accept.

#60 The Work of Your Life - with Khe Hy & Jerry Colonna

Podcast cover
Read more
Khe Hy spent 14 years in Financial Services and was successful by all signs, but his work and life felt ‘meh.’ Something felt disconnected from him as he suited up in the morning and turned off the finance switch in the evening. He opted for a life of more meaning, and started RadReads, a passion project now grown into a community of sorts. But something still didn’t feel right for Khe. Even though he preached a lot about what’s important, he found that a hard talk to walk and instead found himself putting the most important things in his life - his wife and daughter - last on his list of priorities. Despite all of Khe’s efforts in meditation, mindfulness and reflection, he struggled to figure out how to be present for his life. Instead he found himself thinking about ideas, people in his network, and ways to improve. As a self-proclaimed life-hacker, he struggled to find the metrics and hacks to be present. As Khe and Jerry discuss, perhaps the answer to being present is deeper than hacks and metrics. Perhaps the clue lies in what he’s so afraid of.

#86 How Have You Lived Your Life? - with Parker Palmer & Jerry Colonna

Podcast cover
Read more
Aging, the continuous passage of time, is a journey upon which we must all embark. As life unfolds before us, we may be naturally drawn towards a state of inquiry in attempt to discern the purpose and meaning in our soul. For many leaders, the draw can be to gaze upon external outcomes as a manifestation of our life’s meaning, allowing our worthiness to be derived from our relationship between mean and end. But what if we were to allow ourselves to abandon the question, “Does my life have meaning?” and instead consider, “How have I lived?” In this episode, Jerry is joined by speaker, activist, and friend of the Reboot Podcast, Parker J. Palmer, author of "On the Brink of Everything: Grace, Gravity, and Getting Old". Over the course of their conversation, Jerry and Parker contemplate the insights they’ve gained in the process of aging, the power of living life with kindness and gratitude, and the importance of remaining open to being human together.

#22 Does Anyone Really Know What They are Doing? with Sharon Salzberg

Podcast cover
Read more
We’re often in (or feel we’re in) uncharted waters - a place where making things up as we go is a necessity. Feeling lost in those places can be anxiety-inducing. We feel incompetent. We feel shameful. We can end up feeling that everyone has figured it out but me. But how true is that, really? And perhaps the better question--how can owning my own anxiety in these areas help me step more fully into my authentic self and even increase my capacity for happiness? We are honored to welcome one of our key teachers at Reboot, Sharon Salzberg, to the podcast. In this conversation Sharon and Jerry discuss Sharon’s entrepreneurial path, a new definition of success (and failure), authenticity, loving kindness, and the question: Does anyone really know what they are doing?

#90 The Fear of Being You - with Leonie Akhidenor & Jerry Colonna

Podcast cover
Read more
As many leaders can attest, the harshest critics we face often come from within. Even when we feel confident in our work and our abilities, it’s not unusual for thoughts such as, “Am I doing enough?” to arise. Once our inner critic emerges, questions of guilt begin to creep in that we aren’t grinding nearly as long or as hard as those around us. As entrepreneurs, the challenge we face is discerning not only what triggers this internal voice, but recognizing what that voice, our Loyal Soldier, serves to protect. On this episode of the Reboot Podcast, Leonie Akhidenor, Head of Residential Development for View Bank Homes, works with Jerry to explore the roots of her own inner critic, tracing the emergence of Leonie’s Loyal Soldier back to a childhood environment where achievement and success were deemed paramount. Uncovering that, as she grew, Leonie’s constant fear of failure manifested as her superpower, providing an abundance of passion and grit which served to propel her professional success. But as Jerry notes, all superpowers contain a shadow side, and in this instance, Leonie’s fear also brings with it the anxiety and unease that comes with feeling like she isn’t measuring up to her peers. During their time together, Jerry touches on how the anxieties that we carry (and often our parents carry) are passed from generation to generation, and how the logic we used as a child and the survival techniques we developed may actually no longer be needed in our present situations, allowing us to recognize that we’re ok, just as we are.

#76 A More Powerful Way of Working - with Patty McCord & Jerry Colonna

Podcast cover
Read more
Radical honesty - an open and authentic contribution, which lacks the intention of causing unnecessary pain and suffering, but serves to provide a mirror in which we can clearly reflect on the aspects of ourselves to which we are blind. On this episode of the Reboot Podcast, Jerry is joined by Patty McCord, former chief talent officer of Netflix, renowned for pioneering the use of radical honesty in the workplace. With her new book, "Powerful: Building a Culture of Freedom and Responsibility", Patty aims to clearly define the best path for creating workplace cultures of high performance and profitability. Jerry and Patty consider how the implementation of radical honesty in our organizations serves to forge solid, supportive spaces where workplace safety is no longer defined solely by the assurance of employment, but contains space for team members to feel seen, heard and nourished to grow, where skill sets are broadened, and diverse people with different ways of thinking come together without fear or expectation to judge or be judged. Wouldn’t that be a more powerful way of working?

#53 Transform Your Hustle - with Catherine Hoke & Brad Feld

Podcast cover

Almost all successful entrepreneurs will fail - if not fail, fail, fail, and fail again - on their path to success. Every human being made choices in their lives which they regret, are embarrassed of and have caused them deep shame. What would your life be like if you were known only by the worst thing you had ever done? Catherine Hoke is the founder of Defy Ventures, a program that helps incarcerated individuals transform their hustle to entrepreneurial ventures. Following a chance visit (as a guest) to a prison at the age of 26, Catherine left behind a successful investment career to launch a program to build on what she recognized were valuable entrepreneurial skills - simply applied to illegal businesses. Through the journey of building two wildly successful organizations, Cat had her own personal experience of failure, great shame and having to grant herself grace, and a second chance. Nestled in this conversation about failure, mercy and second chances, is an important second discussion. Joined by investor Brad Feld, this episode also includes a heartfelt reflection on the lottery of birth, acknowledging our own privilege, and what we can do when confronted with these realizations.

#62 Letting Go of Perfection - with Sharon Salzberg & Jerry Colonna

Podcast cover
Read more
In an entrepreneurial world where being a billionaire is a yardstick for self-worth, and unattainable goals can give us a false sense of responsibility, control and drive, what is the collateral damage to ourselves? As we chase a sense of perfectionism, and measure ourselves against big goals, how do we counteract the sense of self-loathing we can impinge upon ourselves when we fall short of the images we’re up holding? In this conversation, Jerry sits down with Sharon Salzberg, on her new book "Real Love: The Art of Mindful Connection" to discuss the ways in which love might be a counter-intuitive antidote to the ups and downs of entrepreneurship. We learn that as we cultivate a sense of love and compassion for ourselves in our ambitious pursuits and adventures in life, we bolster our resiliency to face life as it is.

For leaders, when our aspirations and passions align, a crucible is formed from which creativity and productivity stem. At this point in our entrepreneurial journeys we might burn a little brighter, and our way forward feels undeniably palpable. Riding the tide, we may begin to feel ourselves cresting the wave and entering a place where the water becomes muddy and our paths unclear. We’ve entered the dip, and suddenly find ourselves in a quit it or stick with it moment where we must determine how we want to walk through this world. On this episode of the Reboot Podcast, Jerry is joined by friend, entrepreneur, author and speaker, Seth Godin. In this conversation, Seth and Jerry seek to tackle the dip, asking us to consider what is actually happening when it occurs, reminding us of the importance of finding our allies during this time, and how living in the tension of unknowing can actually be the catalyst for attuning our understanding to the most authentic way forward – in our companies, our relationships, and on our own personal paths.

#51 The Love that Heals: Welcoming in Our Shadow - with Jerry Colonna & James Hollis

Podcast cover

“One does not become enlightened by imagining figures of light, but by making the darkness conscious. The latter procedure, however, is disagreeable and therefore not popular.” - C.G. Jung Exploring one’s shadow is no easy undertaking. The idea of getting to know what Jung referred to as, “That which I do not wish to be” is rarely considered an exciting prospect. Yet we implore all leaders to be courageous and get to know and learn to work with their shadow. It is only when we do the work to make the unconscious conscious, that we are able to build true compassion for ourselves and others; freeing us to become the leaders we were born to become. James Hollis is a Jungian analyst, author and lecturer whose work has inspired and influenced us at Reboot. In this episode Jerry and James talk in depth about the Jungian concept of shadow, how shadow shows up in leadership, and what we can do once we become aware of our shadow.

Conversing with Jerry, Dylan expands on how the obstacles he’s faced have provided the opportunity for reflection and personal growth. Dylan recognizes that talking honestly and openly about his adversities lessens his feelings of loneliness and opens his heart to the salve of community.

Reboot Extra #5: Women's Conversations: Making Space for Your Own Truth

Podcast cover

This Reboot Extra marks the first of a Women’s Conversation series, a collaborative discussion with Reboot’s coaches who identify as women, on the realities of women in work and life. We’ll go broad and deep on a bosom-full of topics that can weigh on a woman’s heart; finding solidarity as we weave insight from a range of well-hewn threads of wisdom - our own experience as women in the workplace, as mothers, healers, and coaches. In this first episode, Reboot Co-founder Ali Schultz and fellow senior coach Heather Jassy acknowledge and reflect on the many ways in which women are affected by gender biases in the workplace and the ways in which those barriers can distort and conflate their notions of value and self-worth. Ali and Heather discuss the ‘crabs in a bucket’ theory and unpack the phenomenon of tall poppy syndrome. Finally, they highlight the importance of setting boundaries, making space, and connecting to your truth. *Please note that this episode contains explicit language and may not be suitable for young ears.

#115 - This Could Be Our Future - with Yancey Strickler & Jerry Colonna

Podcast cover
Read more
On this episode of the Reboot Podcast Jerry sits down with Yancey Strickler (Co-founder and former CEO of Kickstarter) to explore his recently released book, "This Could Be Our Future: A Manifesto for a More Generous World," which lays out a vision for building a society that looks beyond money and toward maximizing the values that make life worth living. During this conversation, Yancey and Jerry consider how our values shape the way in which we (and our companies!) show up to meet the world. Yancey sheds light on how the Western World has shifted away from a culture that highly values community, purpose and fairness, and has instead placed focus and value on decisions that maximize financial gain. In order to tackle the major problems facing the world today, Yancey calls for a radical shift in how we view rational self-interest, proposing that self-coherence, or making decisions that are aligned with who you really are and want to be in the future, is the key to expanding our world view. When we come into alignment with ourselves, we are building a greater capacity to see the ways in which our choices could have a greater influence beyond ourselves. In shifting from a ‘me’ to an ‘us’ way of looking at the world, we open ourselves up to the ability to make choices that will create a fairer and more fulfilling world to live in.

#114 - The Shoulds of the Past & the Anxieties of the Future - with Shizu Okusa & Jerry Colonna

Podcast cover
Read more
Along the entrepreneurial journey there comes a time and place for all leaders where we lift our heads from the fog of busyness to find ourselves on an unknown path. Knowing where we are isn’t exactly where we intended to be, we look to the past for clues to how we’ve landed in this spot. For many, this is the integral moment in which we come to realize that our internal and external selves have fallen out of alignment. Our guest on this episode of the Reboot Podcast is Shizu Okusa, Founder & CEO of Wellthy & Co. Feeling stagnant and unsure, Shizu looks to Jerry for support and clarity in discerning the best future for her company and herself. Like most leaders in a position of power, Shizu feels the pull of responsibility to her investors and employees to, “Do the right thing.” As the conversation develops, Jerry aids Shizu in unpacking how intergenerational familial trauma may have manifested as a set of subroutines, directly influencing how she shows up in leadership and life. Shizu begins to acknowledge the ways in which the shoulds of the past and the anxieties of the future limit herself from fully stepping into the now. Jerry reminds Shizu that radical self-inquiry is the catalyst for unraveling the unconscious threads that dictate our lives, the key to alignment between inner and outter, and the driving force for strengthening purpose and meaning.

#112 - Stay and Face It - with Fleet Maull & Jerry Colonna

Podcast cover
Read more
On this episode of the Reboot Podcast, Jerry is joined by Fleet Maull, a fellow coach, social entrepreneur, and author of the recently released book, ​"Radical Responsibility". ​ In this conversation, Fleet shares how his experience in the US prison system served as the impetus for the formation, development, and personal application of his radical responsibility philosophy. As Fleet characterizes, mindfulness, compassion, and the practice of loving-kindness are at the crux of radical responsibility. By embracing ownership for each and every circumstance we face in life (without assigning blame or cultivating a victim narrative) we are better able to reflect upon our current situations and assess creative solutions for moving forward. In considering radical responsibility, Jerry and Fleet tackle three important questions: How am I complicit in creating the conditions I don’t want? In what way can I take ownership for circumstances that I may not have any complicity in? What can be gained from holding your seat amongst the chaos of life?

#111 - Standing in the Gap - with Amy Nelson & Jerry Colonna

Podcast cover
Read more
Although the challenges women leaders face today have been well documented and highly publicized and most of us recognize that women are often forced to tackle unique and disproportionate challenges from their male counterparts, it can be hard to fully empathize with the biases with which we ourselves may not be called to face. On this week’s podcast, you'll meet one female founder who generously shares her story and the singular obstacles she’s been summoned to encounter. A former corporate litigator, Amy Nelson is now the CEO and founder of the Riveter, a workspace which provides support and equal opportunities for women leaders and changemakers. Born in Seattle in 2017, The Riveter has experienced explosive expansion - with five locations being built in the first 16 months. As a result, Amy is now facing down the many hurdles that emerge during a period of rapid scaling. In this conversation with Jerry, Amy expounds on a few of the barriers she’s come up against when raising capital and what it means to take her seat as a leader . Jerry introduces Amy to Parker Palmer’s image of “The Tragic Gap,” recognizing that Amy has been called to stand in the space between the world that is, and the world that is possible. Carrying the burden for all female entrepreneurs to forge a future where women not only have equal opportunity but a true place of belonging as leaders, forging a system where all individuals are worthy of the freedom to actualize in the fullness of who they are.

On this episode of the Reboot Podcast, we’re sharing a special conversation between Jerry Colonna and Dan Harris (ABC News, 10% Happier) that was hosted and recorded by the Rubin Museum of Art earlier this month. In this dialogue, Dan and Jerry explore the importance of radical self-inquiry in leadership and life. Jerry conveys the ways in which the sub-routines of our youth influence the way we show up, meet, and communicate with those around us, and how stepping into adulthood requires that we examine the negative parts of ourselves that we don’t want to own.

#108 - Leading Shoulder to Shoulder - with Sara Hicks & Mathias Meyer

Podcast cover

In this modern age, the ability to connect across continents and timezones is pivotal for a globally distributed team. While email, video calls, and chatting services provide the means to instantly connect, how successfully do we ​truly​ manage to communicate within all these channels? For Sara Hicks, CEO and Co-founder of Reaction Commerce, and recently appointed CTO Mathias Meyer, finding congruence via communication is paramount. On this episode of the Reboot Podcast, Sara and Mathias turn to Jerry for support in establishing a blueprint for their new business partnership, specifically looking to gain insight on how to communicate successfully across a large geographical barrier. In this conversation, Jerry puts forth the notion that all human interactions in relationships (whether work or personal) stem from our desire to feel love, safety, and belonging. Jerry helps Mathias and Sara unearth the ways in which their old patterns of communication may be tied to their personal fears around belonging. Jerry encourages Mathias and Sara to consider how exquisite communication built around empathetic connection grants them the opportunity to stand shoulder to shoulder as leaders and adults, offering them the chance to support each other in their journeys towards growing up.

#104 - The Next Chapter - with David Ryan & Jerry Colonna

Podcast cover
Read more
For all leaders, periods of transitional change usher the impetus for self-inquiry. Whether unforeseen or even expected, transitions provide an opportunity to consider where we are now and where we’d like to be in the future. As our center of gravity shifts, we're given space to ponder what's on the horizon, oftentimes considering how we will find our way forward when we’re still so strongly tied to the version of ourselves we left behind. On this episode of the Reboot Podcast, we introduce you to David Ryan, former Managing Director and Co-founder of Corilla, a collaborative content tool for software teams. In this conversation, David reflects on his decision to shut down his organization and the period of transition it has heralded forward. David expresses gratitude for his time as CEO and explores embracing the uncertainty of stepping into the newest stage of his life as an author. As Jerry gently reminds David, life unfolds as a series of entrances and exits; we must all learn to softly close doors on previous chapters of our lives in order to fully open to what’s next. With each transition, we have the beautiful opportunity to reflect and grow from the experiences that have shaped us. Carrying the threads of the past onward, we weave the tapestry of our lives, creating the pattern for a story that is uniquely, undeniably yours. Leave us a review on Itunes!

#103 - What Kind of Company Do You Want to Work For? - with Chris Savage & Brendan Schwartz

Podcast cover
Read more
For entrepreneurs today, advice on the ‘best practices’ for building a fruitful company abound - prescriptions for raising capital, increasing revenue, and hiring the correct team are often just a click (or the turn of a page) away. In periods of expansion and evolution, founders are tasked with making and implementing pivotal decisions necessary for propelling growth. During these times, it’s not uncommon for leaders to lean heavily on the startup handbook to better understand the ‘right’ way forward; however, as most leaders come to understand, what works in theory doesn’t always play out in practice, and at some point all responsible leaders must consider if the company they’re running is the company they aspired to build. On this episode of the Reboot Podcast, co-founders Chris Savage and Brendan Schwartz share how listening to their instincts led them to flip the script, throw out the startup handbook, and take back ownership of their video-software company, Wistia. Brendan and Chris remark on how buying out their investors released the pressure they felt to implement quick solutions for the sake of driving short-term growth and increasing revenue, and the way in which this shift opened the doors for a more creative and joyful work experience. In this conversation, Jerry, Brendan, and Chris propose an important question for all leaders, “What type of company do you want to work for?” Leave us a review on Itunes!

In this episode, we welcome back Khe Hy, founder of Rad Reads, to the Reboot Podcast for a second time. In his first appearance, Jerry worked with Khe to shed light on the ways in which his unrealized fears surrounding death had contributed to a lack of stillness and presence in his life. Eighteen months after their initial discussion, Khe reconnects with Jerry to explore new questions surrounding purpose, meaning, and making an impact on the world. Together, they explore the decidedly unpredictable nature of life, noting how our desire to control life as it unfolds is one of the greatest creators of stress and suffering. Jerry attests that our quest for equanimity stems from our ability to hold the plans of our lives loosely. It is only once we’ve released our grip on the playbook of life that we can truly  open to the beauty and fullness of our experience. With Jerry’s guidance, Khe comes to understand that in order to actually live his life, he must strive to stay present through the quiet moments that comprise his days. Leave us a review on Itunes!

#101 – A More Powerful Way of Working – with Patty McCord & Jerry Colonna

Podcast cover
Read more
Radical honesty - an open and authentic contribution, which lacks the intention of causing unnecessary pain and suffering, but serves to provide a mirror in which we can clearly reflect on the aspects of ourselves to which we are blind. On this episode of the Reboot Podcast, Jerry is joined by Patty McCord, former chief talent officer of Netflix, renowned for pioneering the use of radical honesty in the workplace. With her new book, Powerful:Building a Culture of Freedom and Responsibility, Patty aims to clearly define the best path for creating workplace cultures of high performance and profitability. In this conversation, Jerry and Patty consider how the implementation of radical honesty in our organizations serves to forge solid, supportive spaces where workplace safety is no longer defined solely by the assurance of employment, but contains space for team members to feel seen, heard and nourished to grow. Where skill sets are broadened, and diverse people with different ways of thinking come together without fear or expectation to judge or be judged. Wouldn’t that be a more powerful way of working?

For many of us experiencing periods of transition, our tendency might be to push through the unknowing of the “here and now” to focus solely on the “what’s next?” Yet, staying present serves us the most.

Here at Reboot we believe that the toughest conversations (with ourselves and others) are often the best catalyst for building bridges of understanding. When we refuse to allow ourselves to be stunted by fear and bravely open to perspectives beyond our own we welcome in a whole new way of seeing the Other. Since its inception in 2014, the Reboot Podcast has endeavored to provide a space where our guests and our listeners feel safe to tackle the difficult conversations that accompany our complex and complicated human lives. In keeping with our mission to host important, yet challenging conversations, (and in perfect time to celebrate Black History Month), we’re airing a recent conversation between host Jerry Colonna and Legacy 71 founder David McQueen. In this episode, Jerry and David touch on various topics, including race as a confining social construct, the notion of legacy, and how it can be reframed to not only exist as a mindset but also as a vehicle for building community and spaces of belonging. David also speaks to the unique challenges facing those in the Pan-African entrepreneurial community and the ways in which he, as a black man, aims to instill leadership lessons to people of color (and the organizations that they build) that will empower them to not only survive the system, but thrive.

Erin Frey and Ti Zhao, are the co-founders of Kip - an app which aids in locating a quality therapist and helps you measure your progress. In this episode, they sit down with Jerry to talk about the issues they run into and the importance of effective communication for a growing team. More importantly, they talk about what makes them tick and how their ability to work together as leaders is one of the most important things they can focus on at this stage of their company. This includes emotional literacy and helping each other regulate when tough issues arise. What does your cofounder (or partner) do when they are scared, angry, sad, triggered? Do you know what they need in that moment? Making time to discover the operating instructions for your partners solidifies not only your communication with each other, but it also solidifies your organization to defy the odds that 89% of startups fail. As Jerry notes, tending to good communication sets culture, direction, and creates the conditions in which raising capital is enhanced. Leave us a review on Itunes!
